Hey All,

Here is a bit more on the BLACK-HEADED GULL at Nisqually Reach in Pierce
County. The bird was fairly distant, though still readily viewable. The
viewing location is a bit odd, there is a trail that runs from the end of
McNeil st in Dupont. About a quarter mile down the trail, a little after
the bend in the trail there is an opening in the trees were you can look
down on the flats. Also there are a few trails that run down the hill but I
would not recommend these as they are steep and you end up on active
railroad tracks at the bottom.

As far as I know the bird has not yet been relocated but I suspect it will
stick around a bit.

Here are a few photos of the bird:

Good Birding,
